The Idiom Team are in Manipal to conduct a workshop with the Medical faculty and students to refurbish the Museum of Anatomy and Pathology. The Museum and Labs house the best and most amazing range of specimens (the best In Asia it seems!) but the look and feel is outdated and the medical students hardly use the facility. The workshop is to glean outcomes to change the under-usage and to create a sharp and iconic identity. (How about MAP – the acronym for Museum of Anatomy and Pathology, which could also imply ‘mapping’ of the body)! J
The workshop, so far, has been very animated – lots of debates, discussions and ideas have poured through.
We had fun nominating people from both teams to fulfil various roles and so we have a Specimen Expert (The Speci-Man), the Content Expert (The Encyclops) and so on!
The faculty and students have created wish lists and we at idiom are looking forward to working these into our designs as far as possible.
Catch a glimpse of the screen printing workshop organised by Idiom Live in association with Chaap last Friday.
Chaap is a screen printing unit which is run by Ekta Manchanda, a senior designer at Idiom.
The half day hands on workshop took the participants through the process of screen printing right from exposing a screen to the final printing. Participants tried out printing on all types of materials right from paper, fabric, banboo, sponge, plastic and even glass.
An evening full of fun and experimentation.
There are more workshops that are been scheduled.
Hope to see you guys there.
A huge thank you to Ekta for organising the workshop for us.
